Thanks Ron, I have seen HO pages that you can print off and I believe it's possible to scale them to suit. I think I have the link somewhere buried in my Bookmarks, if I can find it, I'll post it. The HO loads I got had one disadvantage to the chisel cut method in that some were built up in strips lengthwise with the joins at the same spot as the joints in the prints, and they weren't all that well glued, so a tendency to seperate. Wasn't too much problem to glue back together. The other thing with a couple was that when I sealed the paper covering with slightly diluted white glue, some yellowing occured from the wood, once again nothing severe, but did detract from the whiteness somewhat compared to the others. The wood was sealed and painted with white latex paint, but some of it may have had a pigment that leached through. If you can cut your own wood, something to check for.toot, those look really good. Thanks for sharing them. I haven't attempted tie downs yet mostly because I'm not sure how I want to attach them and make them look right in N scale.
